    I received a digital review copy through Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review. This brief, collected biography includes not only common, household names from history, but lesser-known people as well (a few I had not heard of before). While it's always nice to read about the usual important people, it is refreshing to read about other courageous people I probably never would have otherwise. Overall, a decent collection of biographies of tenacious people. Something important I feel is missin I received a digital review copy through Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review.

Overall, a decent collection of biographies of tenacious people. Something important I feel is missing are the dates/years the subjects lived, and their locations. This information would have been nice to have at the beginning of the subject's section along with their name. The hashtag #Resist and one date is included with each subject's name, though, which does add a bit of reference. The phrase #ResistLesson at the end of each section was also a little much, partially because hashtags are over-used and partially due to the very overt attempt at edification.

    Resist by Veronica Chambers offers 35 short summaries of ways that ordinary people stood up to injustice. Chambers organizes her book chronologically and usually spends 2-4 pages per resister. Although reading short biographical pieces on different people isn't in my reading wheelhouse, I really appreciated all of the parallels that Chambers was able to highlight in resistors from Samuel Adams to Sitting Bull to Ghandi to Chavez to Garza, Cullors, and Tometi.

She highlighted the idea that anyone, no matter their age, gender, social class, or background, can cause change. I think this book has a great place in a classroom library, and I could see it being used as a reference, especially at the beginning of a unit of study on groundbreakers or change-makers.

    What I appreciate most about this collection is its balance. It features the profiles of well-known historical figures such as Susan B. Anthony, Mohandas Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr., but also lesser-known figures such as Lozen the Apache Warrior, Chiune Sugihara, and Wangari Maathai. Resisters are fighting against discrimination based on gender, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, as well as fighting for the right to be educated, the right to vote, or the right to fair representatio What I appreciate most about this collection is its balance. It features the profiles of well-known historical figures such as Susan B.

Resisters are fighting against discrimination based on gender, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, as well as fighting for the right to be educated, the right to vote, or the right to fair representation. It also includes six profiles of individuals, or groups, whose resistance made a great impact on society over the past decade. This book serves as a great primer for young people beginning to explore social activism and is probably best-suited for middle grade readers.

    Inspiring book with a good choice of subjects. The forward by Cory Booker was excellent. Each profile provided just enough information to make the reader want to learn more. I really enjoyed the quotes at the end of each section, particularly Fannie Lou Hamer's p. 132 "Our vote is one of the most valuable things we own." I was a little surprised that the entries for Harvey Milk, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and Malcolm X did not mention their deaths by assassination.
